Last week sad news was announced that the sister of singer Aaron Carter and his brother, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, Leslie died at the age of 25. In the wake of her death there has been an out pouring of support from fans for the family. Over the weekend, Nick didn’t want to disappoint fans and kept a scheduled appearance at the Pool After Dark in Atlantic City and even treated them to a impromptu performance!
On Saturday night, after posing on the red carpet for photographers, Nick went into the club at Harrah’s Resort to his very own private cabana.
While lounging poolside, sources say Nick drank hot tea and water. He appeared humbled by the love and support of his fans and asked casino officials to be moved closer to the crowd so he could pose for pictures with fans.
Nick also had employees set up the stage for him to perform four unplanned songs! His acoustic set included the hit from his solo album, “Just One Kiss;” a Backstreet Boys song, “That Way;” a cover of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin” and the Jonas Brothers single “Burnin Up” much to the delight of club goers.
It has been reported that police believe Nick’s sister Leslie died of an apparent overdose. She married her husband Mike in 2008 and gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Alyssa Jane Ashton back in April 2011. The Carter family previously starred in their own reality TV series, House ofCarters which aired on E! in 2006.
A recent statement on Nick Carter’s website reads in part:
“Performing is cathartic to me and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform.”
